The taste of a grown-up summer.

In 2012, Jason Barrett was a 24 year-old working in his great-grandfather’s button-making factory in Upstate New York, just like four generations of his family. But he was made for a different path. Before the year was out, he started a small batch distillery operation in his home town of Rochester.

But he is sentimental enough to have named his new rebel business after the family tradition — Black Button Distilling. Today, four years later, he has developed a range of unique products including a few Gins, their Four Grain Bourbon, a Fernet, two Moonshines, Vodka, and an interesting “Bourbon Cream” liqueur.

Jason likes Gin. He likes it a lot. But this rebel also thinks that Gin shouldn’t “hit you in the face with a Christmas Tree.” To him that means that the juniper needs to be there, but should take a back seat to some of the other botanicals. So in addition to their floral “Lilac Gin,” they have added Black Button Citrus Forward Gin to their line-up with an emphasis on orange zest and local hops. It seems like a small thing, but the difference really works — so much so that Food and Beverage magazine named it the “Official Gin of Summer.”

Alexander
Alexander,
A summery gin. Something to be had with a slice of cucumber and water crackers and mild cheese and grapes. Think of August evenings, fireflies, and laughter.
 
David
David,
It's nice because its not heavy. Not overpowering. Not lingering. Very good for a spring summer time. Smoother.

Smooth and flavorful with the perfect aftertaste. The fact it’s local to me is just a bonus.

Jedediah,
I agree the after taste not a fan of. But the first taste pretty good. It's a nice mixer gin. But not my favourite.

Charles,
Not my favorite gin but not the worst that I have ever tasted either. The floral notes were great it just seemed to have a strange after taste.
